2018-10-29 (M) Magnet Fish Spectacular

The first design was too small. While it had some nice aesthetics and it was inexpensive to build, the goal was to make fish the size of a basketball. Since they would likely reside in a plastic wading pool, smaller than a basketball would make them way out of scale.

Plastic bowls were found at a surplus store. They were hinged together with a wooden dowel and some twist ties. Gravity pulled the mouth open without effort. This change in scale is better for the project and the cost is still low. The top of the fish is clearly a bowl so it may need some modification.
